Contributions to Conservation presents the latest research in conservation conducted by the Netherlands Institute for Cultural Heritage (ICN) -- a national centre of excellence promoting the study and conservation of objects of art and science through scientific research, education and consultancy. The objective of the ICN is to improve the quality of conservation and collections care in museums, galleries, archives, libraries and other public collections.

The reference work incorporates the accumulated knowledge and results from a broad range of conservation research projects undertaken by the ICN.

Interdisciplinary co-operation and exchange of knowledge play an important part in each conservation research project undertaken by the ICN. Conservators, archivists, curators, conservation consultants and educators, as well as academics, students and researchers in the field will therefore wellcome this book as a broad-based source of knowledge, technique and experience - of great practical benefit in finding optimal solutions to conservation problems.
